2009 SC State Fair Fine Art Premiere Preview & Awards Reception   3 comments

Posted at 11:10 pm in events,venue

Well, I did a bit better than last year when I was 0 for 2 in getting a photos juried into the State Fair show -- This year I'm 1 for 2. Interestingly (or not) though I was quite pleased with both photos, I thought the one that didn't make it was the better of the two..

There was quite a crowd at the reception, and I would almost go as far as to say that it's less crowded to look at the art during the Fair than before. Definitely some nice work on display.

Since they seem to tear the Fair down in a single day, I had not expected to see setup so far progressed on Sunday. I was also a bit surprised at the parking lot. I had written before about the paving work going on, but I was outside the fence, so I couldn't really see the details. It turns out that only the asiles are paved. The actual parking "spaces" are still grass. It seems a bit odd.

  1. Speaking of the State Fair, it isnt what it used to be by ANY stretch of the imagination.. Does anyone remember (this goes back a very long time ago), when there were 2 seperate "State" Fairs? One would be there for a week or so, then the other one would come along? Remember too when they used to shoot fireworks just before they would close at night? Or anyone remember the original "Steel Building" before it burned down in 1966?

  2. So, how did your photos do? On a sad (side) note, my son was notified last year by his 1st grade art teacher that one of his drawerings was chosen to be in the fair. We (he) was very excited and that was pretty much the sole reason we went. Come to find out, while his drawering was chosen by the school to be in the fair, the fair committee had other ideas. We searched and was not chosen to evn be displayed. I wish we'd known that, but I'm sure we weren't the first that happened to. Life lesson for a 1st grader and his parents.

  3. Oh man, that's too bad!

    Well, "Flatbed Roadkill" got hung, but didn't sell, and "Twilight Flight" didn't get hung. Still better than last year..
